Paint Brush Print Vintage 60s Full Skirt Dress -
Some vintage prints really turn our crank. This paint brush stroke is one such idiom. These prints just seem so artsy and modern, like you're wearing an abstract painting.
The dress here is from the late 50s/early 60s. It's a wonderful colorway. The brushy print features shades of blue, white, and green with just a few pops of soft pink. (It's a bit richer in real life than in the photos.) The bodice has a few detailed plastic buttons and some tuxedo style pleating. The sleeves are three-quarter and have those flip back fin style cuffs. The skirt is full and fabulous.
This is one of those things we think would look better in person than on the mannequin. Our mannequin is a size 2/4 and this dress is several sizes too big on her. We are delighted to have this modernist print dress available and hope you'll agree that these abstract patterned vintage fabrics are some of best of the era.
GOOD. There is one hold in the skirt about 7" down from the waist seam. It looks like a cigarette burn. There is a spot on the collar. It's darker and about the size of a postage stamp, but it seems to blend in with the print fairly well. See last two photos. It has string belt loops, but it's missing the belt. Otherwise, clean and ready to wear.
